Intro to Birding Hike (Intermediate)

October 22 at 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

High Mountain Park Preserve – Red Trailhead

Join us for an intermediate-level hike at the beautiful High Mountain Park Preserve. This 4-mile/700 ft. elevation hike features stunning, panoramic summit views of New York City and northern New Jersey. If there has been rain, we may be treated to a waterfall or two. As we turn our eyes to the skies, we will watch for our feathered friends, perhaps even some red shouldered hawks, as the end-of-raptor migration approaches. The Preserve is also home to rare and threatened plants and wildlife including mountain mint and northern long-eared bats, as well as common local species like flying squirrels, wild turkeys, chipmunks, and white-tailed deer. This rigorous hike has some intermediate sections. Be sure to bring snacks and water.

We will meet at the Red Trailhead, at the intersection of Navaho Trail Drive and Reservoir Drive
